what's going on with Kaylee... (almost 33 weeks)

I think I may have waited a week too long, but have promised myself that I will get all of the baby clothes, blankets, sheets, etc. washed before the week is through. Luckily I have all week off. After about the first 5 loads, the novelty and excitement of folding tiny, pink clothes definitely wore off. I am determined to get it all done as soon as possible though, because as time goes on, I am just getting more and more uncomfortable.

Milestone of the week: Kaylee has found my ribs!
I was very happy to be ignorant about what it feels like to have a foot stuck in your ribs for so long. Ignorant no more. She usually shoves her foot up there when I am sleeping and I don't notice it until I stand up to go to the bathroom. I am trying to stay as upright as possible to keep her outta there!

(yes, that is a cabbage patch doll in the swing. we had to take a doll to our baby care class so we could practice swaddling and diapering and she has been hanging around the house ever since.)

Last week we found out that our crib was recalled because of dangers posed by the hardware for the drop side crib. :( It was disappointing, at first, and we (I) immediately started researching and looking for a new crib. Things have a funny way of working out though. A friend overheard a conversation about out crib being recalled and promptly let me know that they had not just a crib, but a whole nursery set that they are not using anymore! We are THRILLED to have been offered this set and although I can no longer say the nursery is complete, I am actually really excited to set up the nursery all over again! AND Babies R Us was having their great trade-in event where people can trade in old or unsafe baby equipment for a 25% off coupon. We hauled in our old crib and used the coupon for our new pack and play:

Kaylee was more active today than she has possibly ever been. Maybe she didn't know what to do with herself with all this peace and quiet. She can sleep through 15 kindergarteners yelling, screaming and talking to her all day long, but apparently needed no sleep this morning. If you look closely, you can see what I mean below (just watch out for my big ol' belly!)

Here's one of my students hanging out with Kaylee.
She talks to her everyday.
